Plates and plates of fruits and veggies and vases of flowers filled a building. Maybe someday I’ll be an exhibitor? I think it’s a pretty neat concept, the judging of produce and such.
Just one of several stands of in jars. Note the lighting used? It made glowing gems of the jars.
And it wouldn’t be a fair be such without the largest zucchini contest? I forget the weights. They were huge!
The textiles building I saved for last. I was impresed by the variety of quilts. Some were traditional.
Some not. Here, detail of a very contemporary piece by a local gal I’ve had the pleasure of meeting.
Note the combination of hand and machine quilting.
Knit and crocheted items. I enjoyed the variety of items exhibited from simple potholders to fine, lace shawls.
I haven’t entered an item in a county fair since high school. Maybe it’s time I revisit that notion for next year?
